joining really just takes a second, it is free, and the amount of information there is valuable stuff.

otherwise, look at details pages of shows you think sounds good and look at what is listed there in the 'source' area ..

for me, I use AT831 (audio technica) mics (really high quality for the price: $129), a batt box ($90) and a nomad jukebox 3 ($120-150 refurbed on ebay) .. that will get you up and running. i've used that rig for 300+ shows and no probelms at all over the past 3.5 years... i hear that the iRiver 100 and 300 series have also been hacked with the 'rockbox' firmware upgrade to make them more easy to use for taping. Hard drive recorders are easy, fast, and large storage size. I'd recommend you look there, since DAT has been discontinued by Sony .. entry level removable media? .. look for Mini Disk or the new 'Hi-MD' stuff that on one disk holds 1GB or more, not like the old MD's that had a smaller file storage limit.

good luck man!

Sony's one-point stereo ECM series is not great, but it would work better than the pair of omnis which is stuck on the Edirol. I wonder how you would use the Edirol's mics for a show. Do you put the whole thing on a tall stand and then use a remote control for the computer part, or hand-hold the thing all night, or run it on a low stand so you can push the buttons, or use a tall stand and just Set-it-and-forget-it? ;-(

Audiotechnicas > JB3 sound like the best low-cost/low maintenance rig, but you might like to generate masters on a removable format like DAT or MD. . . Or not!?

Short answer...you don't. :) It has a line/mic in as well so you can bypass the external mics.

It just seems a little odd to get a system that includes mics, and then not to use them. . . but amateur field recording is not rocket science. The built-in's would come in handy if you were ever late setting up, or just as backup. . . Hm.

That thing has two onmidirectional mics built into it. That is not what you want for recording music, I mean it will work, but those mics will not give you the best result. The idea of a 24-bit digital recorder is a good one, but I don't recommend using those mics. Really taperssection.com is a great resource. Don't be shy!
